SPEEDMEETS IN SEPTEMBER
Looking for a new apprentice? We’re looking for employers in the industries that MITO supports to take part in the Got a Trade? Got it Made! SpeedMeets over September.
Based on the concept of speed-dating, employers meet with each student for six minutes to find out about each other. Each then notes whether they’d like to know more. Matches are then put in touch with each other after the event, and potentially job offers may be made!
There is no cost to attend. Each SpeedMeet will run from approximately 9am to 3pm.
SpeedMeet is taking place in eight locations across September. Secondary school students and other job seekers will be invited to each location.
|Wellington||Tuesday 4 September||Hutt Valley High School|
|Christchurch||Thursday 6 September||Papanui High School|
|Auckland - North Shore||Monday 10 September||Glenfield College|
||Thursday 13 September||Trident High School|
|Whangarei||Tuesday 18 September||Whangarei Boys' High School|
|Auckland - South||Monday 24 September||Manurewa High|
|Gisborne||Tuesday 25 September||Lytton High School|
|Hastings|| Thursday 27 September
||Hastings Boys' High School|
Kelly Henshaw, Service Manager, for Trucks & Trailers says “We’ve attended SpeedMeet twice now and it’s a great way for us to meet people who are interested in working in the industry and to discuss the opportunities available to them.” In 2017, Kelly met Elaine Pereira at SpeedMeet in Auckland. Within days Elaine made a visit to Trucks & Trailers and a job offer was made.
Elaine says that “SpeedMeet is great for school students who don’t know what they want to do, what’s available or what industry appeals to them. It opens your eyes to the large number of opportunities available for a career in the trades and services. And if it wasn’t for SpeedMeet, I wouldn’t have my job!”
